and especially if you come in with not that much experience as both lincoln and obama did, now you know you learn from that the most important thing we got to figure out in the second term is how much do they learn from their mistakes and their strength in the first term. the boldness he's showing that's his decision that's what he's learned and we'll see if that works. >> rose: john heilemann what do you read as the people he's chosen for his national security team how he sees his second term on that front. >> well gosh charlie, that's a, it's obviously a team that's gone through its turmoil. there was turmoil around the question whether susan rice will be secretary of state. he decided not to put her forward. there's turmoil now around chuck hagel. this is, people have pointed out, this is a bunch of seasoned white guys, they are a team that's nothing like as star studded as the team he had in his first term. again i think that reflects to some large extent the degree of something doris was just talking about was the president has swayinger right now and a lot of confidence. and forepolicy, he

supplied to the rebels. the concern president obama had lying weapons would in effect be involved in a proxy war supported by iran and russia. the other side of the debate is nothing else is working and we need to create pressure on assad and build relationship with people inside syria who might take over one day. another factor is there are rebels, al-qaeda affiliated rebels the united states and the west doesn't support. and i don't think it's in the west's interest to see them end up at the top of the heap. >> rose: and then we turn to the story of the chinese army spying on the american government and american companies with david sanger of the "new york times," dune lawrence and michael riley of bloomberg businessweek. >> the cyber has been off to the side as something of an annoyance. i'm hearing this has gotten so big it's moving to the center of the relationship and it risks the rest of the relationship. i think the next thing you're going to see the president sending some kind of envoy to beijing to make that point. >> rose: the conflict in syria and spying on the unite

. anyway it came to the attention of the whitehouse, it was discussed president obama decided against it at the time and others who counseled against the proposal including vice president biden, tom dawn lynn who was recently a your show the national security advisor and susan rice. those are kind of the two camps, the whitehouse against the rest of the government as it existed at that time. but now we have a new national security team. >> rose: where was dennis mcdough know. >> i don't know where he was for a fact but i know dennis was very close to president obama. and i would probably put him in the camp of those being cautious about getting more deeply involved in the crises. and i think the argument would have lined up this way. on the side of caution, you know, you would be getting more deeply involved. and i think the concern president obama had was by supplying weapons would be in effect involved in a approximately war against a regime supported by iran and russia. on the other side of the debate the argument was well nothing else is working and we need to increase the press

president obama delivered his first state of the union address since his re-election. seated among the lerkz and house chambers were americans who symbolize the the priorities including young undocumented immigrants and victims of begun vie -- gun violence. he became emotional preventing further shootings just as he was in the aftermath of sandy hook. he sought his vision for a stronger middle class. he spoke of immigration reform, raising the minimum wage and energy independence. quoted john f. kennedy 1962 speech saying the substitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. you agenda he made few concessions to republicans. it remans to be seen whether the president can break away from the bitter partisanship and dysfunction of his first term and whether he can strike the grand bargains the country needs. >> the greatest nation on worth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crises to the next we can't do it. [applause] let's agree, let's agree right here right now to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always up

.com. >> president obama is hoping to get more democrats to support his second term plans. a push that came through annapolis today. he addressed senate democrats at a closed-door retreat. he delivered a preview of next week's state of the union speech in hopes of getting more lawmakers to back his efforts to reform medicare and immigration as well as his budget plans and assault weapons ban. today we learned florida senator marco rubio will deliver the republican response to the president's address. he has been touted as the potential presidential candidate in 2016. lawmakersican mullica have revealed their plans. the plan calls for a reduction in the federal work force through attrition and a pay freeze for members of congress. sponsors of the bill say it would delay sequestration for one year and achieve $85 billion in savings while congress works on a long-term deficit reduction plan. that move counters the president's call for a shorter term fix. >> this is a way of doing it without cutting defense is, without cutting domestics, and without raising taxes. >> the warehouse says the gop plan is

't skewed to either party. it helped george w. bush in 2000, but it could have helped kerry in 2004. obama could have have possibly people were predicted in september and october won the electoral college while losing the popular vote. so the current system right now isn't skud. there is one red joker there is one blue joker in the deck. they wop up-- pop up but it is not a stacked deck. both parties might favor it states have road tested the idea. it adds to equality. >> rose: erol warren where do you place him in the mant panth onof chief justices. >> there a chapter on him, he is up there inmy vew with john marshal. >> rose: perhaps the greatest. >> and that say controversial statement, it seems. i think he made one huge mistake and i'm this, i'm with the conservatives. i think the warren court let criminal defendants off on crummy technicallities unrelated to guilt or innocence. and that hasn't aged very well. the exclusionary rule. >> rose: right. >> but on the other five things that the warren court didn't. >> rose: you didn't like those rules. >> on that i am i'm to the right of jus

years of the obama administration? >> you know, already we're looking at who's going to be the nominee for president in both parties and we've already started that campaign and people positioning themselves for it. unless -- it's a systemic problem. it's not the people, it's the system and unless we change the system it's going to be at least as extreme because the reward system is as you've seen, you've seen hit in the elections this year. you run for office, you say i will never compromise, i'm going to stick to my principals no matter what, we'll shut down the government if we have to. >> rose: so what happens if the republicans, say we're prepared to shut down the government. >> anybody who says they're willing to shut down the government has got a real serious problem and doesn't belong in public office. >> rose: that the responsibility of the republicans or does the president bear any responsibility if they believe they were forced to. >> it's not the republicans. the problem is not republicans, the problem is republicans and democrats, it's the white house and the congress it's

. this is from the president, president obama, in his second inaugural address referencing selma. here it is. >> we, the people declare today the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal is the star that guides us still just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone. to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricablyly bound from the freedom of every soul on earth. (applause) it is now our generation's task to carry on what those pioneers began. for our journey is not complete til o wiv, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. (cheers and applause) our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.
